5:01 pm
at least four people have died in a suicide attack on a major shopping district. the turkey's prime minister has condemned the attack. our correspondent reports. >> reporter: another bomb goes off in turkey. this time in the heart of istanbul in the middle of the city's busiest shopping district. it is a major tourist investigation. this street would have been packed with shoppers and visitors. witnesses say hundreds of people ran the moments an explosion was
5:02 pm
heard. >> translation: a suicide bomber blew himself up in front of the district around noon and killed three people and wounded 21 others. three of them were in a critical condition. one has just died in hospital. a detail investigation is being carried out. >> reporter: paramedics were quick to arrive. two government officials implicated kurdish separatists linked to the p.k.k. >> several months ago p.k.k. had announced that the party were not happy and that-- that the party would tax action if the
5:03 pm
fighting did not stop. >> reporter: since talks between the government and the p.k.k. broke down in july last year, there have been several bomb attacks across the country. three loan in the capital ankara. in total they've killed almost 300 people. the most recent was less than a week ago. the freedom hawks group which is laukd to the group claims responsibility for that attack. days alert germany announced it was closing its consequence slate in-- consulate in istanbul. it is a few minutes walk away from the scene of the bomb blast. touchl is one of turkey's course sources of income. the economy could be affected
5:04 pm
now for this lawrence lee has more from the kurdish city in southern turkey. >> reporter: certainly the turkish authorities in places like istanbul and ankara. the new year could be an excuse alaunch attacks. they had already announced before this suicide bomb that there would be no new year celebrations and it was banned. even though the authorities failed to predict this suicide attack, the idea that it might be a reason for attack was obviously there. here in the south, the authorities had said that they would allow them to go ahead. they just announced today because of the same security concerns they were telling kurdish civilians that they
5:05 pm
would have to go out in a field in order to hold their celebrations. the same air of violence that seems to perpetrate turkish citizens is certainly very evidence here. yesterday, friday, the police discovered a car with 150 kilograms of explosives. since december this first new year since the ceasefire collapsed last july, the turkish military has brn conducting operations. they have killed 300 p.k.k. fighterss. their homes have been ruined. people feeling threat here under the tur tissue military-- turkish military no group has yet claimed responsibility for saturday's suicide bombing in istanbul, but authorities say it points to
5:06 pm
kurdish rebel or i.s.i.l. it wouldn't be the first attack by a kurdish armed group. the freedom falcon claimed the attack last week in which 37 people died. another bombing in april and also another one in january for more on this we're joined by a former ambassador to turkey. how series would you say the situation is in turkey at the moment? >> i think this latest attack is a clear expansion into the sector and damage the economy. it shows that the government, despite its professed additional efforts isn't able to protect its citizens and it will raise
5:07 pm
tensions in an atmosphere of where it will continue to polarise the situation. there are turkish military campaigns planned for cities in the south-east and for some time people have been predicting that one of the ways the p.k.k. and other on terrorist groups will react is by bringing their terror to the western city: it is a more complicated and more dangerous and apparently still not under control turkey has promised to respond with force. what do you expect that to entail? >> i think that they've already struck the p.k.k. bases in iraq and they have announced plans for a very aggressive campaign in the south-east of turkey against certain cities.
5:08 pm
there was a protest letter signed by hundreds of academics recently and those academics were accused of being collaborators with the terrorists. i think that the government will opt for additional military measures and i don't predict that that will lead us any closer to a peaceful solution what about the relations with the u.s. what do you think is going to happen as a result of all this and there was a suggestion that they might consider closing the air base in the law last few days. >> i think that is a floating rumour. i don't think anyone seriously proposes the airport. the president has accused the u.s. of aiding the kurds in syria and they just happen to be the most effective fighters
5:09 pm
against i.s.i.s. so this will bring pressure on u.s.-turkey relations and on how the u.s. deems to cooperate or not with the kurds in syria you were based there. we heard about the jer pans saying a couple of days ago they closed their consulate and the foreign minister had said at the time they had concrete allegations to be taken seriously, that attacks were being prepared. they had a clear warning there. do you think that would have been shared with the turks? >> absolutely. i think intelligence shares as much as they can with the turks. they certainly want to, as more do, see the attacks stop
5:10 pm
russian saysors are attempting to find out the cause of a plane crash that killed off 62 people on board. the plane operated by flydubai missed the runway in russia. >> reporter: it was making a second attempt to land in bad weather when flight fffz981 cashed. it made one failed attempt to lands at its arrival time. then the plane circled the airport for more than two hours. investigators say there are gusting winds at the time. whilst it was the mid-air holding pattern over the airport, another russian airliner attempted to land three
5:11 pm
times before diverting another another airport 300 kilometers awayment it is not sure why this pilot didn't choose to go to an alternative airport. this footage shows a large explosion with flames and sparks leaping into the air. it is not clear whether the wing or tail of the plane was clipped or whether it nose dived at high speed into the groundment the force of the impact caused the plane to break into small pieces scattered across a large area. it is among this debris that russian investigators discovered the black boxes in tax. people karth at the airport, they learned that all 55 passengers and crew on board were killed. it is a low-cost carrier. it has a strong safety record. the airline says its staff are
5:12 pm
in shock. >> we do not yet know all of the details of incident but we are working closely with the authorities to establish precisely what happened. we are making every effort to care for the those effected and will provide sentence to the family and friends of those who were on board russia's investigating committee is looking into the investigation. >> the investigation is looking in two main versions of the crash. >> reporter: now that the block boxes are found, investigators will try to find out what happened during the last few moments. they will try to find out why the pilot took the final decision and what advice was
5:13 pm
given. it will take a month if not more for the full picture to emerge, but it is one that of the families and friends of the victims want to know sooner rather than later much more to come, including a turkish coast guard stops making refugees entering. to greenland where an act of opportunity and crippling social problems are driving people away. lewis hamilton gets the new f1 season off to start. that coming up in sport: the main suspect in last november's paris attacks has been charged in belgium with terror offences. salah abdeslam was arrested in brussels on friday after four
5:14 pm
months on the run. an arrest warrant has been issued in an attempt to speed his extradition to france. >> reporter: a police convoy carrying salah abdeslam arrives at this prison after he was formally charged with participation in terrorist murder ders. the main suspect in the paris attacks was captured on friday and was likely injured during his arrest. >> translation: he is cooperating with the authorities. in relation to the arrest warrant, we refuse extradition. >> reporter: the french authorities have issued a new european arrest warrant against salah abdeslam, but the french prosecutor warned it could take up to three months to extradite him to france.
5:15 pm
p >> translation: in our investigations, it is clear that he was hechlly involved in the paris attack. he was in the commando unit in the logisticses of the attacks. >> reporter: there is still tension in the neighborhood. four on other people were arrested at the same time as salah abdeslam. three of them are members of a family that shelt erred him during the initiative. >> they have supporters who are willing to shelter him >> translation: we are relieved and happy and stopped this, not only for brussels but for europe and the rest of the world it was this raid earlier in the week that gave police vital clues on the whereabouts of
5:16 pm
europe's most wanted man. shortly after the raid a call was made from a mobile phone linked to salah abdeslam and then police found his fingerprint in the flat. he had been on the run for more than four months. friends of his had driven through the night to pick him up and bring him to brussels. since then it would appear that his movements were limited to an area of just a few kilometers as he ran out of options and hiding places. 130 people were killed and more than 300 injured in coordinated attacks on caf├ęs, a concert hall and a football station in paris on november 13. the main surviving suspect linked to those attacks is now under arrest. the officials in both france and belgium have made it clear that the investigation is far from over. more arrests can be expected
5:17 pm
greek authorities are beginning to implementing the deal between turkey and the e.u. on the handling of high grants and refugees. it comes into force on sunday. that agreement hasn't deterred new rivals. authorities say-- arrivals. 1500 people have crossed the sea in the last few hours. many refugees are hinding on secluded beaches and in woodland areas. thousands of e.u. staff will be deployed to greece. thousands more people remained determined to make the journey. >> translation: we want to cross but they prevented us. where do we go? we thank president erdogan for his efforts but why is he stopping his help while we're in the middle of our journey? >> we're here hoping to be safe
5:18 pm
and they are running from war, from danger, from bombs. we all need legal way, maybe not see by the stae, just running or walking. just that. if turkey give us the right to choose the country to live, to live in, it's okay, but i sense it is greece we have to try to the country. we should be in greece first. then we will choose any country in europe more on this now. joining me in the studios. amnesty international europe and asia director. the deal would discourage people
5:19 pm
to cross >> it will reduce them taking adjourns, that particular one in an isolated sense, is good. it is not clear they will take other routes, that they will stop. there are land routes available. the idea by closing one border you involve a problem of entry if you care to call it that, is in itself i think fairly selacious one migrant will be resettled in the e.u. for every my grant that is returned to turkey. it does answer that side of things. >> the genesis of this idea comes from somewhere sane, the idea how can we introduce a
5:20 pm
concept of resettlement. making that conditional upon some who risk the lives who won't be the resettled ones is morally ambiguous. the essence is you introduce a situation that reduces to zero the arrivals and therefore no resettlement they have 1.7 pillion syrians in turkey and in a report in 2015 said they have maintained the response for consistently high standard and declared the protection regime. it seems they've been doing a good job of looking after the refugees. are they not safer in turkey than they are in europe.
5:21 pm
>> a situation that would provide that, would require access to a protection status, which they have. then also access to employment, toed indicate for their children, to housing. people are not getting access to that. to take a good emergency humanitarian response, and extrapolate that to a the fact where they can get protection, establish a stable life for years to come is a stretch. it is a stretch beyond what's legally permissible. will the agreed authorities have the capacity to deal with the numbers in terms of process case to implement the deal? >> manifestly not. it is an unworkable currently in they will say individual process
5:22 pm
for every single person. even through phantom processes is ambiguous thank you for that. 18 egyptian policemen have been killed in an attack. egypt's ministry says a check point was hit by mortar rounds. i.s.i.l. says its fighters were behind the ambush and that a suicide bomber was involved. at least 43 people have been killed in a series of air strikes in raqqa. the dead include five children and seven women. the area is an i.s.i.l. stronghold and the target of syrian government and russian attacks. russian planes have attacked an ancient city and 18 i.s.i.l. fighters were killed in the area. syria's state news agency said
5:23 pm
they're heading south. every year around 500 people leave greenland to seek a better life elsewhere. the traditional ways of life are dying out and the progression pekts of future generations don't look promising. our correspondent travelled to greenland. >> reporter: growing up here has changed. their traditional way of life is dying out and a struggling economy has left people here with little help. they have severe social problems like alcoholism and unemployment. every year hundreds leave to seek a better life. others give up altogether. single mother has attempted suicide twice and escape problems at home by moving. she runs her own company as she builds her life.
5:24 pm
>> of course, who wants to live in a place where everything is difficult, where it's hard to get a home. i've been living and renting an porment on the black market for the past 16 months. deciding to come back was one of my biggest mistakes. >> reporter: life here can are hash and not just because of the climate. the hundreds of young people who are leaving take their skills away from the committee which has to support an ageing population. in the short-term at least hand outs from denmark could be the only solution. it reliance heavily on an stipend. >> we have to do better jobs to inform people.
5:25 pm
denmark doesn't mean it will solve your problems. you have to solve your own problems. >> reporter: small time giants are one of greenland's biggest lan land. >> there is a bit of prejudice in denmark towards greenland. you have to go to denmark to try to achieve something that you can't achieve here in greenland. there is a low place to where you can climb. >> reporter: still ahead on al jazeera, pro-government supporters take to the streets of brazil as former president dilma rousseff is blocked from cabinet. 80,000 people across the world are set to cast their vote for
5:26 pm
the government in exile. we will tell you who upset the 400 metres record holder. details coming up later. s coming up later.
5:27 pm
5:28 pm
>> al jazeera america brings you independent reporting without spin. >> not everybody is asking the questions you're asking me today. >> we give you more perspectives >> the separatists took control a few days ago. >> and a global view. >> now everybody in this country can hear them. >> getting the story first-hand. >> they have travelled for weeks, sometimes months. >> what's your message then? >> we need help now. >> you're watching al jazeera america.
5:29 pm
a reminder of the top stories. turkey's prime minister has deannounced a suicide bombing. the attack was carried out at the centers of terrorism according to an official. prosecutors have charged one of the main importantise attack suspects of the paris. investigators are trying to determine the crash cause of the plan in russia. the president will intend to run again. >> reporter: this man has been president of the republic of
5:30 pm
congo for a long time. he has ruled from 1979 to 1992. after a brief civil war, he regained power in 1997. he then went on to win elections in 2002 and 2009. last year he secured the right to seek a thirty consecutive term in a constitutional referendum. he seems confident he will win the polls. >> translation: we will win this election. we have a lot of supporters cross the country. >> reporter: eight opponents are running in the first round, but former chief is the main challenger. he used to be the president security adviser before retiring last year. opposition leaders say the president lost control of state resources and security makes it an unfair election and they fear there could be electoral fault. >> translation: it is not possible for the president to
5:31 pm
win this election. it would mean the people's vote has been stolen. we will reject the result. >> reporter: last year several opposition supporters who were against a third term was shot and killed. >> there are people running who are going to the obviously appling. it is like the bad movement. >> reporter: some fear there could be violence after the election. the european union says sunday's election won't be credible. the international community has been relatively silent on him extending his term in office. it may have something to do with the economic interest here. congo is the fourth highest oil producer in south africa. officials have been sent to over sea but they didn't do that in the burundi. african leaders will try to
5:32 pm
extend their rule and it is another test for the west and the african union, one that could expose entrenched economic interests and, perhaps, double standards voting is underway in the final phase of the elections for the tibetan government in ex-kyle. more than 80,000 tibetans are around the world are expected to vote. >> reporter: this is little tibet in new delhi where people are voting for a new government. the diaspora around the world elect governments where there is no campaigning. this man is running to represent an eastern region. >> it is quite difficult, but we
5:33 pm
are the wisest, so we want if anything happens, we can go to a nation and all the like authorities. >> reporter: the spiritual head of the community, this is the only second election without him. there has been a diaspora and throughout the world. the question is whether such a government is effective and can truly represent people inside and out of tibet. china doesn't recognise the government in exile, making it difficult for politicians to address the real grievances of people on the ground. these are not just about getting freedom but looking at their future outside tibet.
5:34 pm
this man runs his family's restaurant and wants the government it exile to focus on issues important to the younger generation who have never seen tibet >> they can give better education, less unemployment, like giving directions. that's what they can do >> reporter: back on the campaign trail, this is a first-generation refugee who still longs for home >> translation: every day i hope we can go to the tibet. we all have to work on it. >> reporter: whatever the results of these elections, it is people like this man who are a reminder of the main goal and hope of tibet's space pace diaspora a political crisis in brazil
5:35 pm
has divided the country with thousands participating in pro and anti-government rallies. they come as brazil's supreme court blocks's lula da silva's aappointment to the cabinet. >> reporter: this is a small opposition demonstration to counter the demonstration that we saw in this very same spot stwru a few hours ago by government supporters in favor of the president dilma rousseff and they were addressed by the former president lieu. this in itself is a follow on from what happened here last sunday when millions of people crowded the streets of the cities of praz ilcalling for-- brazil and calling for the removal of president dilma rousseff. we have demonstrations likely to continue while we wait await decisions by the court and dilma rousseff herself to p on how she is going to consolidate her position. >> translation: we would like to see her behind bars. it is about time the federal
5:36 pm
police got going. that is what the people want. the people want justice. >> translation: part of the population made a pifk and we have to fix it. the sooner we physical it the better it will be for the country. the longer we wait the worse it will get. >> reporter: there is increasing uncertain t with no obvious end in sight to what we see as a political crisis joining us live is our correspondent. what's the latest on former president lula da silva? >> reporter: there is some dramatic developments in the last 24 hours. on friday night a judge in the supreme court actually said that he cannot serve in her cabinet because late last week dilma rousseff said she was going to make lula da silva her chief minister, a very powerful position, and he was actually
5:37 pm
expecting to start his first day on the job this coming tuesday. that likely is now not going to happen because when this ruling by a supreme court justice saying, no, not going to happen, he said that he can-- this ruling said he cannot take this job while this investigation into adelaide corruption is ongoing. this is important. why? because the ex-president is a very powerful figure here in this country and within his party. if he was going to take that cabinet position or if he would have had that cabinet position, he would have had immunity, meaning he could not be arrested. now that's not the case. in theory the investigators and the federal police, if they feel they have enough evidence, they could arrest the ex-president. that would be a huge development if that happened. that would throw this country into deeper turmoil than it already is. i will say aside from all these developments, here at the national congress building behind me, next week they will start a special commission, will
5:38 pm
start the first phase of impeachment hearings against president dilma rousseff. so a lot going on here and certainly this country without a doubt in extreme political crisis right now tell us about how it has divided the country, all this. >> reporter: it has. we saw last week a lot of anti-government protests, hundreds of thousands of people on the street mobilize. they want to see her out of office. they want had impeached. last night, friday night we saw the opposite. we saw pro-government supporters out on the streets and they were out in force as well. the estimates were 95,000 people. here we saw thousand more. the protests were widespread and they were supporters of the government. they say they do not want a coup. that's their key message.
5:39 pm
this country is completely divided no end in sight for these big street protests. obama is about to become the first sitting u.s. president in 90 years to visit cuba. he will meet castro in an effort to change the relationship between the two countries. >> reporter: it still looks like the havana of the pre-cold war era. like most vifrlts, the president will likely see thrust back into the 1950s when he sees the architecture and the old american cars from before the 1959 revolution still working against all odds. he will be able to admire cuba's
5:40 pm
colonial center, and stop here. eat at one of the scores of privately-owned restaurants, test meants to the expansion. >> part of this magic and moment is because we have accumulated so many layers of history and beefl architecture and design. >> reporter: havana also wears the scars of decades of decay. what he won't see is what is on the inside. so many of these houses are absolutely deteriorated because the lack of maintenance and repairs. this one was collapsed. it has been condemned and yet there are still families living inside. 74-year-old has been living here since he was 12. he says he is finally about to
5:41 pm
be moved by the government. >> translation: there is no pluming, so at night i bring water from the sewage tank next-door. >> reporter: authorities will likely tell obama that the faded paint and crumbling buildings are the fault of u.s. sanctions. although many here say government neglect is to blame. it is a metaphor of a relationship that is falling apart, one that was kept frozen in time and which with obama's visit appears to be taking a joint step into the 21st century how big a coup is this visit for castro? >> reporter: i think it is huge
5:42 pm
for the president. this means really it's a powerful symbol of a new chapter between cuba and the country that has been waging economic war against cuba for the last 50 years or more. remember, the president is going to be retiring in just two years. his legacy will be that with the president that ended the cold w war. it is very, very good for him and it will allow him to hopefully step down from power and to leave this country on a much better footing than the one that he found when he took office eight years ago how much of a political shift do you expect from the government, the only communist government in the region. that is another story altogether. i think that is not in the cards
5:43 pm
and it is not even in option. at least in the short-term. the president has made it very, very clear cuba will not change its one party communist state in exchange for friendship with the u.s. and to underscore that, guess who he invited for dinner or perhaps it was lunch yesterday. none other than the president from venezuela. he was here and he was, in fact, given cuba's highest honor, the award. it was a way of saying we can be friends with the u.s., we can have a reck sailation in hostilities, but we will not change our system or our revolutionary principles represented, of course, by cuba and venezuela in this region how quickly do you think the relationship will get closer? >> reporter: it's getting very,
5:44 pm
very close already. before it is even arrived, the p.m. has sensed a very significant gifts in this direction. he has eased even further the economic embargo, the restrictions on travel by americans here. the u.s. of the-- use of the u.s. dollars will be important. he is only going to be in office until january. people want to know if this is going to be irreversible. it is meant to make it irreversible, but we know a new administration, particularly if the republicans can win can change all that because all these changes have been done under executive order. they can be undone by a new government here is a task that is not are for the faint hearted. in pakistan conservationists have begun a project to plant one hundred million trees. it is to reverse the fengt of
5:45 pm
climate change caused by illegal logging. i do not the mountain slopes in the distance shows how quickly forests in pakistan are disappearing. thousands of trees are being chopped down and being transported by illegal loggers. it is one of the many factors causing deforest station. they're all reducing the number of trees. pakistan has already listed. they're vulnerable to climate change. conservationists say there is a link between forest destruction
5:46 pm
and land erosion and flooding. it is tied to heat waves which have killed dozens of people. an announcement to plant 100 million trees over the next five years. this is in the province of northern pakistan where saplings can be planted in communities. >> about one million plants and by six million plants have been shifted. >> reporter: many have welcomed the planting effort but say the government is destroying tree cover and cities. >> you see you have all these reforestation, but if you see islamabad, punjab, because of these project, which is a paradox anyway, we are having a lot of deforestation which is not good for the family. people say they're already achieving results from previous
5:47 pm
ones. >> translation: we have many benefits such as financial environmental and also fuel. >> translation: we will have cleaner area. >> reporter: unless the effort to increase forest cover is expanded, conservationists fear pakistan's vulnerability to climate change will remain many young people in south korea voicing their sdoiment at the lack of opportunities available to them. despite economic and political progress, many find the options available uninspiring. it is so bad that when the president came to power three years ago, she called for a national mirror ago emto boost levels of happiness. >> reporter: it is a busy evening. a young crowd is checking out a new area of bars and restaurant. they live in one of the area's most happening cities in one of its richest countries.
5:48 pm
many carry pressures and concerns. these final year students are playing a game which tells them whether they belong to the dirt spoon, silver spoon or gomd spoon class in this stratified society. >> translation: it does occur to me that i should settle for what i can get rather than what i want to do. >> translation: even if you get a job, the structure is tough. i can see why people want to leave. >> reporter: south korea has some of the longest work hours in the world. a recent poll by job seekers suggested 80% of the members in their 20s could leave the country if they could. >> reporter: adult life is merely the reward for a childhood of long hours of competitive study. it is hardly an appealing prospect and some have coined a new name for it. this is a map to what one website has named hell korea.
5:49 pm
these days this woman works for a union. she has put her university studies on hold to work in a job to save money. she sometime hasn't finished her degree. >> translation: getting a job is not easy. even if you find a job, it is an irregular lar position or a one-year contract. it is not something you can fix through your own efforts. >> reporter: it is an issue that the government says it recognises as a serious one. >> translation: we do not regard this as a simple show of complaint or discontent. we have to see it as a real phenomenon and we believe it gives us a task to come up with solutions. >> reporter: some are coming up with their own, like this group of young people who own and operate the restaurant in a block necessity call passion island.
5:50 pm
>> translation: blaming a dirt spoon, that leaves you with no option but to escape. unless you decide to leave, you have to find a way of facing it, of finding out what you can do well. >> reporter: it is a message of apostasity, but for many young south koreans, it is one that might be hard to embrace still ahead on al jazeera, leicester city's main man keeps on course. on course.

race the australian grand prix. the session saw a new format introduced. drivers have to lyn up and are eliminated one-by-one at 90-second intervals. it has come under criticism from fans, drivers and even team bosses who describe this as pretty boring. most teams didn't even bother running in the last session opting instead to save their tyres for sunday's race. hamilton clocked the fastest qualifying time against his team mate who was second. >> i really have to just not take my hat on off, but take my hat off to the team over what they have done to raise the bar once more in the third year to be fighting. for me it inspires me and motivates me and i really
